Allowing entities outside the ARIN region to continue holding addresses originally assigned to an ARIN-region organization to which the non-ARIN-region entity is a legal successor seems reasonable to me, and less fraught than allowing IPv6 and IPv4 waitlist space to be M&A transferred to another RIR. 

Support.
